At his size, not enough upside. If his skill is great, why didn’t he tear it up in 18-19? He’s just Nic Petan.
Ran it again:
14. Connor Zary, C
22. Seth Jarvis, RW
76. Alexander Pashin, RW
86. Emil Heineman, LW
107. Brock Faber, RD
138. Alex Laferriere, RW
169. Daniil Zaitsev, LD
200. Brady Burns, C
201. Parker Ford, C
202. Theo Nordlund, LD
They updated the trade value for that draft simulator!
I am going to spend so much time on there between now and the draft
Keep coming back to these names; alphabetically Gunler, Holloway, Jarvis, Lundell, Mysak and Quinn.
I disagree completely. Jarvis is bigger than Petan was in their respective draft years. He's physical enough to steal pucks from opponents unlike Petan who is all offense and can't lay the body worth of shit. Plus, Jarvis's speed is one of the best in the draft and he was most certainly going to have surpassed 100 pts if the season continued.
He'll be fine....
Weird thumbnail, but ex-Wolfpack signing with Anaheim. He's 30 now, but that never stopped Tim Thomas.
Red Line Report's two mock drafts have us getting:
13. Seth Jarvis
23. William Wallinder
13. Anton Lundell
23. Justin Barron
game for either.
Their scoring rates were basically identical for their draft years, took Jarvis 2 months of a 3ppg pace to get there. Caveat emptor.
Man I hope they can grab a 2nd in this draft, my first round I'm going Euro with Gunler and then it's a bit of a toss up between Nybeck or one of the Germans
Trading Georgiev for an early 2nd and getting Nybeck/Peterka would be nice
Yep, I think this has to be the last draft where they really load up. Put themselves in a spot where if needed they can move a bunch of guys for a big ticket player without losing the ability to supplement themselves in the future.
Agreed, time and time again they find these goalies and get the best out of them. Keep taking advantage of it
Fresh hype reel for Marco Rossi - who had the highest PPG of this draft class
Rangers are scheduled for 9 picks in 2021--an extra 3rd and an extra 4th. The possibility that Henrik, Staal and Smith will be traded at the deadline (if there is one anyway) and I definitely see a possibility that Lias moves on too and whatever any of those players would bring. I certainly wouldn't be looking to re-sign any of the 3 vets. But anyway this is not necessarily the last draft that the Rangers load up and IMO there is no good reason for the Rangers to be allowing their development system to crater the way that it had.
I'm not interested in the 2nd round pick by the way unless it's used with our early 1st to move up a few spots. We should be looking at the quality of prospect more than the quantity of prospects right now.
Hey I'm with ya, there's a few players that if they drop and all it takes is a 2nd I'm all for it. But a guy like Gunler has top 10 talent and the names I mentioned are home run swings so no one's talking about sacrificing quality for quantity, I'll take both. I will say this, there's a few guys in that top 10 that I wouldn't be willing to move up for if we are able to grab Gunler in the teens.
Hell, it might not even take long for our next one. We'll see how Wall looks in his first pro year but it's not like that's a dude coming out of junior. He'll be 23 next season, if he does have an NHL future it shouldn't be too many years
Gunler's one of those guys that it seems some like him a lot and others not so much. If the Rangers are able to move into the top 10 he's probably not the guy I'd be looking at.
I wouldn't trade Georgiev just for a 2nd rounder though if there wasn't another deal to piggyback that off of. I don't have that much faith in Henrik anymore and the Rangers are going to need a backup who can play 30 games anyway. Then again I'm pretty sure that if there is a 20-21 it will be a shortened season and if so it will be less than 30. Alex is the real deal as a goalie....he's just not as good as Shesterkin. Backup goaltender is a very important position--a mediocre backup goalie can derail a season and/or force your starter to play more than you want him to.
To me it seems if we can get one of Lafreniere, Byfield, Stutzle, Drysdale, Rossi or Holtz it would be a coup. They'll all be gone it seems by 8 at the latest and they could be the top 6. The batch that comes in after that group would probably be who the Rangers would realistically move up for and Lundell, Raymond, Sanderson and maybe a couple others in that group.
What I’m learning in that draft simulator is that it would not be hard to trade our two firsts to get up to 7-8-9 and nab a falling Holtz.
Yep, it really all depends who's on and off the board. If somehow Stutzle, Rossi, Perfetti, etc. are falling I'd do what I can to move up. Raymond? Probably not. The Dmen? Probably not. Holtz and Lundell? Possibly. Would I move our two firsts for Lundell over taking Gunler and Nybeck, that's close
It really depends on who is available.
If it's Lundell vs Gunler+Jarvis, I go with Gunler+Jarvis. Even though I really like Lundell and think he would be a great addition to our team.
I want Quinn if they move up. Don’t think they are getting into that tier above.
This will all become clearer once the draft order is firmed up. Right now, the teams showing in the last third of the first round don’t have a lot of draft capital to move up and most of the top teams already slotted have plenty of draft capital and no need to trade down. Between the lottery and a few qualifying round upsets, there will be some teams that end up in surprising draft positions.
I think we draft 2 forwards that have also ability or potential to play physical. probably 1 LW and 1 C or 2 Centers.
Separate names with a comma.
